Italian Modernism

If you're into Italian Modernism, then an exhibition which opened yesterday at the Estorick Collection in north London is the one for you: From Morandi to Guttuso: Masterpieces from the Alberto Della Ragione Collection. Alberto was a major collector of this work. In 1970 he donated his collection to the city of Florence following the devastating floods four years earlier. It was last exhibited in 2006 in the city's Forte di Belvedere. The exhibition at the Estorick Collection continues until 3 April (title link). The example shown is Giorgio de Chirico's Les bains mystérieux (c. 1934-36).
